JUDITH MILLER ON
Judith Miller.

Judith Miller is an adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a City Journal contributing editor. A best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter formerly with the New York Times, she has won numerous awards for her articles and her defense of the First Amendment.

Since 2008, Ms. Miller has been a commentator for Fox News, speaking on terrorism and other national security issues, the Middle East, U.S. foreign policy, and the need to strike a delicate balance between protecting both national security and civil liberties in a post-9/11 world.

Prior to leaving the Times in October, 2005, she spent 85 days in jail to defend a reporter's right to protect confidential sources. That year she received the Society of Professional Journalists' "First Amendment Award" for her defense of an independent press. Since leaving jail, she has been advocating the enactment of a Federal shield law to protect the relationship between reporters and their sources and the public's right to know.

Ms. Miller has written four books and contributed chapters to several others. Her most recent book, "Germs: Biological Weapons and America's Secret War" (Simon & Schuster, 2001), written with two Times colleagues, topped the best seller's list in the wake of 9/11 and the anthrax letter terrorist attacks. Her previous book, "God Has Ninety-Nine Names", (Simon & Schuster, 1996) explores the spread of Islamic extremism in ten Middle Eastern countries, including Israel and Iran. "One, By One, By One" (Simon & Schuster, 1990) is a highly praised account of how people in six nations have distorted the memory of the Holocaust. That same year, she co-authored "Saddam Hussein and the Crisis in the Gulf" (Times Books), which also topped The Times Best Seller list during the 1991 Gulf war. Her new book, The Story, A Reporters Journey, is being published by Simon & Schuster this spring.

In 2002, Ms. Miller was part of a small team that won a Pulitzer Prize for "explanatory journalism" for her January, 2001 series on Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. That same year, she won an Emmy for her work on a Nova/New York Times documentary based on articles for her book, "Germs." She was part of the Times team that won the prestigious DuPont award for a series of programs on terrorism for PBS's "Frontline."

Ms. Miller holds a bachelor's degree from Barnard and a master's from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. She resides in New York City and Sag Harbor with her husband, Jason Epstein, a publisher and writer.


Judith Miller was interviewed by U.S. News & World Report on the proposed Federal Shield Law, which would protect the right of journalists to refuse to reveal their sources. Click here to read the July 29, 2008 interview.
